Supporting Families

We aim to support families in several ways. 

  1. Through education and information so they can learn about all sorts of ways to save energy, save money and live a more healthy lifestyle. 
  1. Through Wisdom Trust Grants to help them make positive changes in their own lives. 
  1. Through our Wisdom Trust Community WISH scheme, in which our local Wisdom Trust Ambassadors will be able to ensure that nobody is left behind and that everyone is able to get the help, advice and friendship they need within their local community. 

Eco Tips, Health Tips & Thrifty Tips

Families can benefit by participating in our learning and information programs to learn more about saving energy, saving money and living a more healthy lifestyle. 

Within our library of knowledge and wisdom, we feature an expanding list of tips that offer advice for everyone on living in a more environmentally-conscious way, plus suggestions on how to maintain a more healthy lifestyle and even advice on being mindful and efficient with your money. 

Eco-tips show how to save energy and water and to reduce waste; health-tips show how you can make small improvements to your lifestyle to become more healthy; and thrifty-tips will help you save money every day. 

By viewing more of these tips on a regular basis, we hope to inspire you to help save the environment, live a healthier lifestyle and save money on dozens of everyday activities and purchases. 

You’ll earn Wisdom Trust Credits as you learn.  So, as well as becoming more aware of all sorts of positive new ways to save energy, live a healthier lifestyle and save money, you’ll also be helping to divert more funds to your nominated charity or good cause. 

You could even submit some tips of your own for inclusion in our library and earn additional Credits every time someone else looks at them. 

Not forgetting, of course, that every Credit you earn has the added benefit of increasing the value of your own personal Wisdom Trust Grant Fund. 

As part of our mission to help our members increase their knowledge and wisdom, we plan a big expansion in our education provision and will continue to add new, interesting and  exciting educational programmes on our website, all of which will earn members Credits to help their favourite cause and build up their own personal Wisdom Trust Grant Fund. 

To kick things off, we recommend that members use our community section to join any groups that interest them and enjoy all the learning opportunities they provide.  They can comment on and add to any discussions they find there or even start their own groups about subjects that interest them.  And everything they do will earn them even more Credits.  They’ll even earn Credits when other members join their groups or comment on, add to or share any of their discussions. 

It’s so easy!!  Get involved today.

Wisdom Trust Grants

At the Wisdom Trust, we think it’s very important to support the work of charities, good causes and all sorts of other not-for-profit initiatives with regular donations from our Donations Fund. But we also believe it’s important to support individuals too, so they can make small, important changes in their own lives to help make a positive difference as well. 

Wisdom Trust Grants are available to all our registered members, and increase in value, little by little, every time they’re awarded a Wisdom Trust Credit through their activity on our website or by shopping online. 

There are four types of Grant. 

A) Eco Grants:  Wisdom Trust Eco Grants help members reduce their carbon footprint at home or in the office through energy saving initiatives such as solar panels, wind turbines, loft insulation or reduce/reuse/recycle schemes. Any project which saves energy or water or reduces waste could qualify to be part-funded by a Wisdom Trust Eco Grant. 

B) Education Grants:  Wisdom Trust Education Grants help students and young people cover the cost of their higher education – such as course fees at college or university, books and in some cases accommodation expenses too. Every child, of any age, can join us now and start to build their own personal Wisdom Trust Education Grant Fund to help them later on in their lives when they go on to college or university. 

C) Social Grants:  Wisdom Trust Social Grants help members – especially those with young families, and the elderly (and particularly those on low incomes) – to cover the extra costs of healthier food options such as fresh fruit and vegetables, or to heat their homes in Winter. 

D) Charity Grants:  Wisdom Trust Charity Grants are quite simply for those people who just want to use their Grant Fund to channel additional funding to their favourite cause. 

Your Wisdom Trust Grant Fund grows little by little, every time you’re awarded any of our special Wisdom Trust Credits for all sorts of activities. 

But we’ll also adds extra value to your account when you shop online via our Market Place at any of thousands of popular stores, by way of an award of even more Credits, appropriate to the value of any purchase. 

One of the most interesting aspects of The Wisdom Trust ‘community networking’ model is that we’ll also add additional value to your Wisdom Trust Grant fund when your friends, family and colleagues join us, earn Credits of their own and shop online. 

In effect, what this means is that your favourite cause could benefit from your friends’ learning and online shopping, and to a lesser degree from the learning and online shopping of your friends’ friends too – and so on. 

Plus, at the same time of course, the faster your own Wisdom Trust Grant Fund could grow, as a result. So make sure you use the tools provided elsewhere in the website to introduce as many of your friends, family and colleagues as possible. 

It’s just one of the small ways we like to show our gratitude to you for helping us to spread the word.

The Wisdom Trust Community WISH Scheme

Our Wisdom Trust ‘Community WISH’ scheme ensures we can offer support to whole communities. Members can volunteer as Wisdom Trust Ambassadors, forming local Wisdom Trust groups – our ‘experts on the ground’ – to reach out and help people and organisations in their local area – offering Wisdom, Inspiration, Support and Hope. 

Wisdom Trust Ambassadors will help ensure we connect with all local charities, good causes, schools, hospitals and other not-for-profit initiatives, including corporate charity foundations, in their communities. We can offer all these causes a new source of regular funding, publicity for their campaigns, activities and events via our website and social media platforms, as well as Wisdom Trust Grants for their supporters, staff and families. 

Our local Wisdom Trust Ambassador teams will help connect the vulnerable, the elderly, families and those that are unwell with all the available resources and organisations which can improve their lives. Our Wisdom Trust Ambassadors will become specialists in their communities, so that wherever help is needed, they can make a real difference. 

For example, we could help the elderly by making sure they’re aware of local groups and local grants, meals on wheels, special transport schemes and help to heat their homes in Winter. We could deliver their medication and help them buy food and meet other people so they’re not lonely. 

Wisdom Trust Ambassadors can also help mothers with young children so they can also get all the help they need by connecting them with local ‘mother and baby’ groups, nurseries, healthcare and charities which offer advice and assistance.
